Not so plain Jane! Hey... I've already used quite a bit of your help through
your posts to others.
I'm using a 3rd Party program called Scenalyzer Live... it is made for quick
editing of video clips. As it reads clips from the camera, it separates them
automatically by time code so when I start then stop my recording, it gets
saved as a clip file (avi).
As I work with the clips within the program, I can easily delete them,
rename them, trim, split, and generally edit them.
I didn't start this program as administrator... and it won't delete or
rename any files. However, if I trim, split, or otherwise edit them, the
program can write the new file, then tries to delete the old one, which, of
course, it can't do. I was hoping for a (CTRL-Click), or generally hold the
tongue the right way method of solving it quickly.
Alas, nothing worked, but I "hacked" my way through it manually. At the end
of the day, all of the so-called "security" or "protection" or whatever
excuse for very poor useability it is called, I was able to manually work
through it. That is, the "user-friendliness" of vista simply took what
should have been an automatic 5 minute operation and turn it into another
hour of work.
Thanks for your posts, though.. and keep them up. Like I say, I've already
used several of your other posts in here... and glad you're patient enough to
figure this stuff out.
